    No, not spike the neighborhood bully, or Spike the dog. this is Spike that hangs out under the A/C unit on my office trailer at work.

    He was "working the web" the other day and I tried to capture him in action. Unfortunately, both Spike jumping around and the wind blowing was giving me about a 2" sphere to try to shoot him in. Hand held no less. Talk about a moving target! Cue theme music from "Mission Impossible." :lol:

    Anyway, without further preamble...

    Corry- it's the side of the trailer actually. He was about 2 feet from the trailer and this was shot at about a 30° angle to the side of the trailer.

    Looks like the sky though. :)

    It does look like the sky! It looks like he's floating on a string of web we can't see and that's the overcast sky behind him.

    Jim you've got to warn a guy if it's spider picture...some of us have arachnophobia. ;) From the 2 seconds that I saw the picture it seems that you got a pretty nice sharp picture. It was good enough to make me jump. ;)

    You should see the full frame. Looks like he's on the inside of your monitor. :)

    Thanks all for the kind comments.
